I have been receiving a lot of complaints from residents regarding dampness and the effects that was having on their homes and their daily lives.

We all know the problems dampness can have on a home and affects it have on people health. The Housing Executive have been doing a lot of work to try and address this but the residents I have spoken to said it wasn’t working in the long  run and there needed to be long term solution to this.

I am pleased to inform residents of Bluebell Hill Gardens in the Brandywell that the NIHE have now appointed consultants to survey all Housing Executive properties on the street.

I am encouraging all residents to use this opportunity to raise the issue of dampness and any other concerns they may have.

The Housing Executive hope to have this survey completed by Christmas .I will be hosting another public meeting when the results of the survey are known .This meeting will enable us to develop a way forward for residents
